    Feel terrible for Driskel, but Murphy gives us more options and a better chance to win. He is more elusive and has more awareness and poise. Not sure why Muschamp didn't see this or even put him in the Miami game in 2nd half...yes I know it's UT, but it said a lot. Give Murphy more reps and experience and he could be very good for us.

    Let's hope he runs with it. Next year is going to be a battle for that job.

    Only one game but Murphy looks more than capable. The defense is elite.

    This will be a different team, but possibly better. I suspect

    Feel really, really bad for Jeff. Hopefully he can get a medical redshirt.

    It certainly looks like Murphy is up to the challenge. He looks much better than others have said he might if this scenario ever played out.

    If Murphy can even eliminate the mistakes that Jeff is prone to making, we'll be ok

    With our D, we just need a capable game manager and TM showed it today. He has pocket awareness and so far protects the ball.

    I will say this again, our OL coach has to go. UT OL gave their qb consistently lots of time, not so with our turnstile OL. A change needs to be made imo.

    Feel very bad for JD. Murphy is a good kid but he can't beat the elite teams in the SEC. If the defense can dominate we have a shot at a decent bowl game. Sorry Jeff....you didn't deserve this kind of a season ending!

    No offense to JD, but he also threw a pick6 to a non-elite SEC defense

    How can someone say Tyler can't beat the elite teams? How about we give him a chance. Hope Jeff gets healthy real soon.

    Based on what have you decided he can't beat the elite teams? The first snaps of his career?

    Murphy has it upstairs. Perhaps more than the people paid to coach him.
    I'm buying more tickets after seeing this kid.
    Give em heck, Tyler!!
